  • I want to get new hardware, how do i go about it?

    Hey everyone. I recently picked up a Dean EVO Dragster (see the link). I bought it with the intention of upgrading the hardware and pickups. I know how to go about the pickups, but what about the hardware? I'd like to replace all the black hardware with chrome or gold, not black. What kind of bridge do I have? I've been playing for 2 years but I've never really paid much attention the gear/technical side of stuff, just theory and practicing lol. I'd like to make this guitar perform at it's maximum, and I know new hardware would help. Which stuff though, and how should i go about doing it? Thanks

    take it to a tech, and ask him what he thinks will make this guitar perform to its highest level, then have him set it up, ect. Its really hard to explain, sorry.

      I went to the Dean website, didn't see anything there about exactly what they install in the Dragster, but found an email address you could try: [email protected].
      also found their phone number and mailing address:

        Looks like a combination stoptail/bridge. Dean uses a lot of tonepro's stuff, even on some of the midrange guitars. I would imagine that if it's not a tonepros bridge, you could replace it with one. You would just need to measure the width of the studs.

        As for tuners, Dean also uses Grovers for the most part. If you're looking for a chrome set I have one for sale...took them off my Dean Hardtail - 18:1 rotomatics. Knobs you can buy anywhere and in any color...they're all pretty much the same size.

        Good Luck
